Parametric Modeling & FEA Applications for Welders


Study and application of parametric modeling using SolidWorks® and AutoDesk Inventor® 3D modeling software. Skills covered include generating and editing models and assemblies, analyzing mass properties, rendering and animation, and basic 3D-to-2D documentation techniques with an emphasis on welding applications. Application of industrial dimensioning principles & tolerances will be introduced. Commercial Finite Element Analysis (FEA) programs and result validation will be explored.
